We had their pizza for lunch with our friends. Loved it so much went a second time during our two week stay in Cuba. Best pizza I have had in Cuba. We’ve been to Cuba 17 times so have had pizza quite a few times.

We read some reviews about this place, that they have good food. But... we ordered some pica, and it was like pica from freezer, all done just warm it. Taste was terrible. 2 stars is just for mohitos, that wasn't bad.

Went on the recommendation of other tourists. They indicated it had first intrigued them when walking by and noticing the long line ups of patrons waiting to get in. Had our Resort book a reservation for 4. Food was lovely and had beautiful presentation. We...thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The prices were extremely reasonable compared to many other local restaurants.More

Absolutely incredible place in Cuba! For its price, the best in Varadero for sure. We went twice, once for Lunch, once for Dinner. For Lunch, we got the Bolognese Pasta and the Chorizo Pizza. Such good food, comparable to eating out in the West. The...atmosphere was great, the staff were lovely, and everyone was having a great time there. For Dinner, we got the Whole Fish and the Carbonara. The Fish was incredibly cooked, delicious, and a show stopper. The Carbonara was not the authentic one but still yummy. The drinks were great, like the Tequila Sunrise. We also had dessert and it was YUM! If you would have given me this meal in any Western City, I would’ve been just as happy eating it. Very lovely place, a must try if you’re sick of Resort food.More

Lunch today was really good! We had the tuna antipasto. It was a little weird. It was cabbage and canned tuna. The drinks were great, we had a whiskey sour, a mojito, and a dirty banana. We had the Don alex pizza which was yummy....Their bathrooms had a toilet seat, toilet paper and was nice and clean. We took the panoramic tour bus from our resort and the bus lady let us know which stop to get off to find the place. Price was very decent.More

Great restaurant in Varadero with a lovely outdoor atmosphere. The staff was friendly and welcoming. We went twice for dinner and even did a take out pizza one day for lunch on the beach. Prices are reasonable.

Nice Italian but all outdoors so loads of mosquitos this time of year. Right opposite Salsa Suarez. Lovely staff and good food- pizza and fish both good. Small band play for individual tables.

We decided to book a table and dine there, as otherwise it was difficult. Seeing people queueing we thought it was worthgoing, but NO! We had a carbonara (910 CUP) , which was overcooked and tasteless & a pizza romana (1.170 CUP) for which, as...they mentioned they had no black olives. So instead of them, we added green pepper. When we got the bill, we realised that we were charged also for the green pepper!! After complaining they removed it from the bill. The rest, oh yes, we paid them all! If you are hungry in Varadero, just try to find other places with good quality - value for money. I don't recommend it to anyone. The only good part are the waitresses & waiters, who are smily and kind. An alternative are the restaurants located at 62 calle. There we had very good food and we paid so little. ✌More
